MINING NOTES AND TIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 August 1894

Mining Notes and Tips. [Bf Gnomb.] The 74 tons of ore raised from Queen in four days should, under ordinary circumstances, cheer the hearts of shareholder? , but the return merely showsiow wretchedly the tribute arrangements have been entered into to the manifest injury of the company. The, tribntors on one of the sections are reaping heavy profits that should have gone to the company. The system under which some of the tributes have been let should be quite sufficient to show to shareholders the necessity for a drastic change on the board of directors. The usual 'scheming is being re sorted to by those who would like to put the retiring directors back again. The shareholders have the matter in their- own hands, if they wish to save the company. Mr. Taylor does woll in not running on any ticket, but 1 hope two good men will be sent in to support him. Most of the 74 tons of ore raised by the Queen lest week was pro duced by the tributors. Well done, New Golden Gate. With the reef str...

MOSTLY UP NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 18 August 1894

Mostly up North, I IBr Caulos ] The City Council is a power for good or evil. I believe honestly it tries to do well, but somehow most religiously they grab the wrong end of the poker. To let the burgesses know they are alive, they have just called for tenders for the removal of the whole of the bluegums that fringe the south side of Invermay road, and which are decidedly one of the attractions of the place. Our local authorities never seem happy unless they are rooting up trees in our reserves or public thoroughfares ; it is their idea of showing their artistic taste. . The excuse is that the borer, a greedy und voracious little insect peculiar to the North, is slowly kilting the trees and to puth the deadly work along to the finish the council intend to give the borer a hand by grubb ing up the trees hoi us boles. In most civilised countries where any thing like this happens they get the bulge on the deadlj insect, but here they help him nlong. The orchadist does his best always t...
